Hello, pkralev. Welcome to the club! Like you, I'm a newbie. Maybe you have the version of Fab Platinum which doesn't copy protected dvd's.
When I got mine a couple of months ago, there were two flavours for sale: one which could deal with protected dvd's, and one which didn't.
This is probably no help to you, but at least you know someone read your post. See you later, then.
